    Ignore that - it is going nicely.I figured out what happened. The blow-off water container that
    I duck taped to the fermenter leg had slipped down the leg a little during the night - the
    blow-off hose...

    Made a starter without nutrient. White labs 001 in 1.5 starter with 150g dme. I also oxygenated
    the dme with pure O2 for about 5 secs. Then straight onto stirrer plate. Both wort and yeast
    were at roo...

    You don't direct fire your MT, do you?Nope. I don't heat it at all. Water heated in HLT. I
    don't mash out currently - but plan too via circulating through the HLT once I put an element
    in it - current...

    Spray with a hose and dry. Fill with pbw occasionally. If it lasts a year I'll be happy, cheap

  • Posted in thread: Nutrient to starter AND boil? on 06-23-2015 at 08:04 AM
    Hi,It's probably an easy one but.. I've entered the world of yeast starters and wondering if I
    add nutrients to the starter would I not need to add it to the boil? or perhaps it makes no
    difference if...

  • Posted in thread: 51% Efficiency - Grind the problem??? on 05-25-2015 at 08:52 AM
    Yes crush can make a difference. And so does sparge water temp, and so does the speed at which
    you lauter - doing it too fast will result in a poor rinse. My poor efficiency was a result of
    the combin...

    Just wondering if it could be harbouring something - might be possible if it was older
    scratched plastic.Just went through photos of bottling day and I see I used the fermenter with
    gash for fermentat...

    Your fermenter looks like it's fairly new but what do you use for a bottling bucket? Just
    wondering if it could be harbouring something - might be possible if it was older scratched
    plastic. Are you r...

    How does the tubing on the auto siphon look? When did you last change it?The saved wort was

    into it and le...
